it was with that little camera that i took pics of our old house and yard back in the city. we had a beautiful house and yard and i took millions of pics with that camera - like this one:
and jambaloney took a pic of me snow-blowing our 30 ft driveway (i am wearing a 20yr old snowsuit that i still have and use - so now it's 26 yrs old!!!!). funny thing - we didn't even have a car but always kept our driveway cleared - bahahahah!
i took this photo of jambaloney's gorgeous torque tattoo that he got in october 2000 with that camera (he thought about filling it in but i said "NO WAY!):
i made my avatar with that little camera:
with that camera, i took this pic of my gorgeous man: (holy crap - he is gorgeous! and if you can believe it - even more gorgeous now!):
that night we went out and of course, i wore my bunny ears (i wore my bunny ears everywhere!):
that's The Man standing beside a 13ft snowbank that he snow-blowed through one of the worst winters in ottawa!
prior to leaving for Framboise Manor - our step-dad and his grandson made this beautiful bird house for us:
of course that old little camera caught the pics:
and then we landed in Framboise....the first 6 months were a blur and not many pics were taken with that camera - a camera that had served us so well! jambaloney's mom and step-dad came to visit us the first june we were here and we used that camera to take the following pics:
jambaloney's mom and step-dad are as goofy as jambaloney and me - we love that!
and then we drove them up to Framboise Manor....in my excitement, i jumped out of the truck to show them where to park, dropped my precious camera....and then jambaloney drove our truck over loved camera #1!
enter camera #2:
that camera took pics of our first pizzas:
it took pics of our yard long before we were able to do much with it:
it took pics of our delicious trout that we have enjoyed eating since we got here:
it took a pic of me in my mermaid tail down at the river:
it took a pic of the beginning of "blue-cup" season:
it took many pics of our beautiful river:
but sadly...after 5 long years of taking pics - it died. i am sooo sad.
and now i am stuck with this ugly thing!
it will take great pics. sure. but it is blue. and probably my least favourite colour in the world! but it was on sale...and we used money from our emergency fund to buy it....because i love taking pictures! in the next few posts...garden updates and whatnot...the pics were taken using jambaloney's nokia windows phone - it was driving me near mad!
first world problems - i know. but nothing gives me greater pleasure than taking hundreds of pics a day of our beautiful land. and then, in the middle of the night when i can't sleep - i can look back through all of the pics. those pics provide me with peace when my mind is rattling...but they also give me a chance to be thankful and grateful for everything that we have here.
i hope that you enjoyed our camera history.
